French President Emmanuel Macron has released what he calls a "letter to the French, " encouraging a national debate on issues that have led to two months of anti government protests. "This is how I intend to turn anger into solutions, " Macron said Sunday. "Your proposals will help build a new contract for the nation, organizing the actions of the government and parliament, but also France's positions at the European and international levels. " Macron plans to hold a number of town hall meetings across the country over the next eight weeks. Among the questions he is opening for debate are which taxes should be cut, what public spending should be a priority, are there too many bureaucratic layers, and questions surrounding the environment and immigration. While Macron said no topic will be off the table, the right of people to seek asylum in France will not be up for debate. "We won't agree on everything, which is normal in a democracy. But at least we'll show we're a people which is not afraid of talking, exchanging ideas , debating. " So called "yellow vest " marches erupted in France in November against a now scrapped fuel tax. But they have since expanded into a general anti government protest, especially in rural France, where many see Macron as someone more interested in the wealthy than their problems. Some of the marches have turned violent, leading to government proposals to ban anyone wearing face masks from joining in or starting their own march. The free speech group Reporters Without Borders has called on protest organizers to condemn violence against journalists covering the marches. The group says reporters have been beaten, kicked, and threatened with rape.

Last summer I wrote a piece for Foreign Policy called Trump Is the First President to Get Turkey Right. Some of my colleagues and friends thought I;d gone quite mad as the U.S. president brought his ferocious Twitter feed to bear on Turkish officials and Turkey s economy. It was not, of course, the intemperate tweets that I was applauding, but the willingness of the Trump administration to bring public pressure on Ankara over a variety of issues whether the arrest and unjust imprisonment of American citizens, the targeting of journalists, the intention to buy advanced weapons from Russia, or the threats at U.S. soldiers serving in Syria. When Andrew Brunson, a North Carolina pastor who had been in Turkish custody for two years, was released in October, it confirmed for me that playing hardball with Turkey was superior to the intensive private diplomacy that previous administrations had tried with Ankara.Life moves pretty fast, though. Turkey has apparently gone from antagonist to partner in just a few months. The man whom Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused of waging economic warfare on Turkey will now visit the country in 2019. The two leaders have had two phone calls in 10 days. The sudden thaw is, of course, directly related to President Donald Trump s decision to withdraw American forces from Syria as soon as possible, leaving Erdogan, who previously threatened U.S. officers with an Ottoman slap and who did everything he could to complicate the fight against the self declared Islamic State in Syria, to mop it all up and stabilize the area.
